Med Time

Rolling raucous laughter recedes

Echoing chaotic cacophony fades

Singly, and in twos

Night meds kick in

Eyes glaze over

Zombies drift off to bed

Sleeping away time.


Mid-morn field review
Reveals additional attendant
Lemon-yellow presence
Peeks between wires
Startlingly bright
Winging sunny joy
Into a color starved world.

Yellow Wink

Boldly emerging amongst deepening green

Smattering of golden yellow heads

Universal springtime assertion

Nature’s resistance to human control

Butter-topped toy for childhood

Innocent playful exuberance

Source of sighs, exasperated

Beseiging lawns, gardens cultivated

Fuel of back-breaking hours

Battling, extracting, removing

Brilliant sun-mirrored reminder

Flourishing in face of

Persistent annihilative efforts

Dandelions wink possibilities.

Visual Snack

Green overlaid, sun-bleached

Freshly mown field

Methodically rectangular lined

Hopping robin dotted

Russet-breasted presences

Conspicuous contrasts

Hungrily yellow-beaked feeding

Mid-morning visual snack
